Please join us in attending the 2019 KEYS Research Internship Showcase!

This marks the close of the KEYS program, where KEYS interns present what they’ve learned and experienced to friends, family, and the academic community at a public research showcase.

Keep Engaging Youth in Science

One of the core tenets of BIO5’s mission is the commitment to educate our next generation of scientists.

The Keep Engaging Youth in Science (KEYS) program offers summer research internships to top performing high school students who have a strong interest in pursuing advanced education and training in the bioscience or biomedical fields.

With support from many UA partners and program sponsors, the BIO5 Institute and the College of Pharmacy’s Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center (SWEHSC) lead the KEYS program.

KEYS interns enroll with no tuition fees in the University of Arizona during their summer break for a week of intensive laboratory and science literacy training, followed by six weeks in the laboratory of a renowned UA researcher. The program concludes with the KEYS Research Showcase, where students present their work to their families, UA scientists, community leaders, and program sponsors.

Many KEYS alumni have reported that the experience changed their lives and taught them that they are capable of making important contributions to science.
